Juvederm is a very popular cosmetic facial injectable. It is used around the world in cosmetic medical offices as a dermal filler to enhance facial youthful beauty. Juvaderm is most often used to reduce and soften visible deep folds and wrinkles in the mid and lower face. Composed mainly of synthetic hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in human soft tissue and skin, Juvederm is a safe and effective cosmetic enhancement treatment.

Juvederm is most often used in cosmetic applications to fill in wrinkles, folds, and depressions in the skin that are caused by aging, laxity and post acne scarring. It is an excellent, safe technique that can help to fill, lift, and volumize the depressions and grooves that aging and laxity can create. Juvaderm can create the appearance of a younger, healthier, and more vibrant face. It is often used as an adjunct to Botox treatment to reduce the look of wrinkles and give a refreshed, younger appearance.
This injectable filler can be used to treat and reduce the wrinkles or “laugh lines” that run from the corner of the mouth to the corner of the nose. It can also be used in a lip augmentation processes. When used to plump the lips, Juvederm can help those whose lips have lost shape and fullness with age. Another use of this filler is for cheek augmentation, to fill in sagging cheeks and making them more full and smooth.
Results of Juvederm treatment often vary from patient to patient depending on an individual’s body and reaction. The use of Juvaderm is a maintenance type treatment, which needs to be repeated secondary to the body eventually resorbing the enhanced effect of the filler. Some report that the effects last for a year, while others may need to return for a follow-up treatment within six to nine months.
Our bodies produce a naturally occurring hydrating substance known as hyaluronic acid, or HA. With age, sunlight exposure, and many other factors the amount of HA produced in your skin decreases.
Without sufficient amounts of HA, your skin begins to lose volume and structure, leading to visible folds and wrinkles. Juvederm is a dermal filler that replaces the HA in your skin, immediately increasing volume and smoothness to reduce visible lines. It is completely safe, FDA approved, and most women claim a positive result within 15 to 30 minutes of receiving the injections.
The effects of Juvederm treatments can last longer than a typical Botox injection, with the effects lasting up to a year. Another bonus is that Juvederm has been proven a safe and effective treatment on women and men of all skin colors and skin types. No anesthesia or minimal topical anesthesia is required during Juvederm treatments and there is little or no discomfort after the injections have been administered.
Some side effects of Juvederm treatment include pain, tenderness, bruising, redness or swelling at the site of the injection. However, these side effects are temporary and short-lived.
The more rare and serious possible side effects include reactions of the immune system and facial bumps or granulomas. Juvederm is not recommended to those with severe allergies to bacterial proteins and to those who have a blood clotting disorder.
Precautions to be taken for the first 24 hours following the treatment include:
